what do i do when sleep don't come?

  • i scrape and clean last year's medium size bee frames. 
    • really hard work by the way!
  • i scrape and clean last year's medium size supers
  • i give my old (currently not in use) medium hive supers a fresh coat of paint.
  • i build my new shallow size bee frames. 
  • i give the new shallow size supers (built last week) a fresh coat of paint 
  • i wrap my paint brush in a plastic bag and store it in the fridge until it's next use
  • i load fresh wax foundation into the frames 
  • i talk to chickens in a semi-dark garage while doing all of the above - so as not to disturb them any more than i already am that is. i adore their cooing and sweet sleepy voices.  
  • i humor opera kitty who is now absolutely sure that i am nutso. 
  • i enjoy the cool of the eve with my creature friends and thank the gods for the simple joys in my life
  • i head back in and give sleep a second go
  • i would do this all night if it were not for all that i need to do in the morrow
  • i head back in and give sleep a second go
  • i head back in and give sleep a second go
  • sleep sometimes she comes to me real slow
